Lanes School of Driving was established in 1914. Instructors at Lanes have taught many generations of locals to drive and today Lanes has an excellent reputation for quality instruction.
At Lanes we regard each of our pupils as having different needs, and our courses are carefully calibrated to suit each individual. Our intensive driving courses are a popular option for those who want to progress fast. Theory lessons can be either incorporated into practical lessons or taught separately.
Our pupils have the option of further instruction after passing their driving test. A range of after pass courses are available including: Parking Skills, Advanced Driving, Pass Plus and Motorway Driving.
Pupils often have hectic schedules. At Lanes, pupils can timetable their lessons for a time convenient for them. Lessons are offered either as part of a weekly course, or as single lessons.
Lanes is committed to offering all pupils one on one instruction. We find that this ensures that each pupil is guaranteed the full attention of their instructor, allowing faster progress.
Lanes has a range of top models for our pupils to drive.
Lanes can collect pupils prior to their lesson and drop them back home at the end of the lesson.
